Pepper the adoptable guinea pig is actually very sweet

Pepper the tricolor guinea pig is very sweet, and the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria is trying to find him a new home.

“Pepper is a clever guy who loves toys and entertainment, including wood and cardboard toys to chew, equipment for exercise, and, of course, a hiding hole for sleeping and spying,” said AWLA spokesperson Gina Hardter.

Guinea pigs are social animals who can be taught tricks, especially if you’re generous with the treats, Hardter said.

Learn more about guinea pigs and how to make a comfortable home for them by contacting the team at the AWLA. Visit AlexandriaAnimals.org/Adopt-By-Appointment to schedule time to meet Pepper virtually or in-person.
